Jen Marlowe is an award winning filmmaker, human rights activist, author and playwright. We talk about her new play, 'There is a Field' as she organizes simultaneous readings throughout the month of October. It is to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Israeli Palestinian, Aseel Asleh who was a peace activist.

Jen Marlowe tells his story, talks about his writing, the words and stories of his family and friends, and explains the historical meaning of his life. (Land Day, 2nd Intifada, former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon)

The Israeli security forces charged Aseel Asleh as he stood watching a peaceful demonstration. He ran and they chased him into an olive grove. As his friends and horrified parents watched the Israeli security agents hit him with a rifle butt knocking him to the ground. He fell out of sight and then they all heard the shot... "You can come and get him now" an Israeli said to Asleh's parents. The evidence points to an execution style shooting of a young man who dreamed of peace, not war, and friendships, not hatreds.

Jen Marlowe explains how she has developed her play to tell the story of one individual who lost his life as a way to help people understand the broader crisis facing Palestinians inside Israel. Jen Marlowe has was a friend to Aseel Asleh and remains close to his family.
